    Rich under load, lean at idle ?

    Looking for second opinions, my AGU is running rich under load and lean at idle according to vag com. It seems to lack torque at low rpm until above 3k and fuel consumption is poor even when driving steady.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks.

    AFM or Lambda would be my first guesses, more AFM though... it doesn't normally produce VAG COM fault codes either.

    At least it's running rich when the loud pedal is pressed, lean being the enemy!!

    Ah ok thanks for your input.
    I did notice today however that at idle the engine seems to rev up and down, you can hear the tone goin up and down constantly. Ive done a throttle body clean and alignment with vag com. Oh and I'm getting roughly 23-24 to the gallon driving steady ?
    I appreciate your help.

    Bloody hell, mine is running more boost than it's meant to on a Stage 1 map and a fair wack of other mods and I'm getting a 27 average and that caning it a fair bit since I've got a lead right foot...

    Am I just lucky?
